Two teenagers are in hospital with severe injuries and two arrests have been made on suspicion of dangerous driving after a serious crash near Hadlow.
One of the injured teenagers is fighting for his life following the collision on the A26 Maidstone Road just before 8pm last night.
It involved two Landrover Defenders, one orange and the other silver.
Both cars were heading towards Tonbridge when the silver Defender hit a tree at the side of the road.
Police officers and ambulance crews went to the scene and a 17-year-old boy was taken to a London hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Another 17-year-old boy suffered serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital.
A 17-year-old from East Sussex was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and has been bailed to return to the police station on February 28.
An 18-year-old East Sussex man was also arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and remains in police custody.
The road was closed throughout the night while an investigation was carried out. It reopened at around 5.30am.
Officers from the serious collision investigation unit want to hear from anyone who witnessed the crash or saw the two Defenders driving from Hadlow towards Tonbridge.
They particularly want to speak to those in a car that was reported to be travelling along the A26 Tonbridge Road towards Maidstone and who may have seen the two Defenders immediately before the accident.
Anyone with information can call the appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting reference 22-1230, or email email@example.com.
